Part of the largest network of scholarships for women in the world.

A proud partner of The Miss New York State Organization, the Empire State Educational Scholarship Fund (ESESF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the educational pursuits of young women across New York State, as well as the New York communities in which these women choose to volunteer, work, attend school and live. All donations are tax deductible

We are proud to offer scholarship awards to those competing for the titles of Miss New York and its local programs throughout New York State, recognizing and rewarding the intelligence, talent, moral character and personal commitment of our exceptional participants.

The New York City Rotary Foundation has donated a $10,000 Grant to the Empire State Educational Scholarship Fund. This $10,000 Grant is for the scholarship award presented to Miss New York.

The Miss America Organization

Last year, the Miss America Organization and its state and local organizations made available millions in cash and scholarship assistance. As an official state license, we are proud to uphold the tradition of funding higher education for female leaders.
